So I assessed last night and realized I have nothing to fear in terms of maternity wear for the winter/early spring months. I have enough. I bought two cheap o shirts at Target recently plus another non maternity shirt but OMG it totally looks like a maternity shirt plus the shirts I had from the 1st go around. I still fit okay into most of my pants. And I got the Bella Band I ordered and LOVE IT! I totally have my jeans on with the button undone RIGHT NOW and you cannot tell! YEAH! I figure I can also still wear some of my none maternity wear (shirts wise) but I have to tell you for those of you who actually see me often I am quite sure there will be A LOT of repeated items but I also decided that I can handle that from January to April (when it hopefully will start to warm back up...) so I do not end up spending a fortune on maternity wear over the course of three seasons.
After being reminded by Melissa that I can get away with gaucho pants and dresses in the summer I think I am going to take that route. I was also happy to find I have two maternity skirts! I did not wear skirts much because it was dang cold the last time I was pregnant and the thought of wearing tights made me gag just a little especially by the last months of my pregnancy. I would not need to wear anything on my legs in the summer so I can actually use these skirts this go around.
I am looking forward to finding some fun flowing summer dresses to wear - I can go all Woodstock and wear flip flops and flowery summer dresses - WOOOO HOOO! Maybe a daisy in my hair?! Okay, maybe not... I could not wear any shoes by about month six during the first pregnancy without massive pain so flip flops are going to be the shoe of choice I have a feeling especially by June/July/August. I actually hate shoes and would prefer to never wear them but that is not possible obviously! Ugh and let us not even delve into under garments which I hate to buy because I am cheap and the mere thought of the dowdy nursing bar makes me shudder with disgust... woe is me!
All in all, I am sure this monumental post is heart warming to you and yours BUT I am feeling infinitely better about the maternity wear issue now.
